Giant Steps offer a range of specialist services for those on the Autism Spectrum. These services are designed to supplement the standard curriculum.
Each child has their own individual program tailored to their needs. Programs can include specialist services ranging from speech therapy and occupational therapy to dance and music.
Our staff frequently attend professional development sessions to ensure the use of information technology devices reflects best practice and the choice of applications used are assessed for quality, innovation and application.
